National Catholic Sisters Week goes big for its sixth year

The sixth annual celebration of Catholic women religious, which always begins March 8, International Women's Day, and runs through March 14, has a record number of events planned. National Catholic Sisters Week, which focuses on getting laypeople to engage with sisters, continues to grow in part because the program staff have made it easier than ever to participate.

Justice, canon law, restoration: How do sisters heal after transgressions?

When it comes out that vowed religious have committed a crime and brought scandal to themselves, their order and the Catholic Church, not only do community members at issue need healing, but the relationships within the community do, as well. Issues can even become a call for renewal and commitment to the value of religious life for the whole community.
